Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding in 2017!
2017 is a great year to get married from a numerical point of view. 2+0+1+7 =10 and 1+0=1 which means that the year 2017 is a "1" year. This "1" Universal Year cycle is only the second cycle based on "10" since 1900! 2017 is the first of a nine year cycle. Number 1 resonates with the vibrations and attributes of new beginnings, creation, independence, uniqueness, motivation, striving forward and progress, ambition and will power, and positiveness. Number 1 also resonates with the energies of pioneering, raw energy, force, activity, self-leadership and assertiveness, initiative, instinct and intuition. 1 being the number of 'new' is the number from which all manifestation begins. It is the energy that begins all actions and leads the way in new directions. New ideas, new projects and the desire for expansion all allow the number 1 to go forth with courage, originality and decisiveness. What does this mean for your marriage in 2017? It means that it is the perfect year for a new beginning, what a blessing for your union!
In terms of Chinese Astrology, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster (1-28-17 to 2-15-18). The year 2017 is placed under the protection of the fabulous and flamboyant sign of the Fire Rooster, whose virtues of righteousness, perseverance and transparency generously reward those who understand them well enough. The Rooster falls under the element of Fire which is the element of passion! This year is auspicious for weddings. The color red (associated with the element of Fire) is the traditional color of the wedding dress in China and other Asian countries. If you have been in a relationship for years, then 2017 is a good time for you to get married.
